In Memoriam Claudia Pinza Bozzolla

In Memoriam: Claudia (Pinza) Bozzolla

Bellevue has lost an immensely talented and devoted member of our community. Former Metropolitan Opera singer, local voice professor, and longtime Bellevue resident Claudia Pinza Bozzolla passed away on Thursday, August 3. We are saddened by this incredible loss, but grateful that her story will live on through her family, friends, colleagues, and students whose lives she so influentially touched.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to EPCASO (Ezio Pinza Council for American Singers of Opera), 121 Woodlawn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15202.

Bellevue Business Spotlight
Lincoln Barber Shop

After 50 years in Bellevue, the Lincoln Barber Shop still attracts customers from throughout the Pittsburgh area. Loyal patrons often come to the barber shop for decades, with multiple generations of family members passing down this tradition.

Owner Aaron Stubna, who is in his mid-40s, has been cutting hair on Lincoln Avenue for over 25 years in the same shop that his grandfather, Fred Mell, started in 1966.

Stop in for a cut, and see if the antique porcelain barber station, traditional German Koken barber chairs, and hometown family charm keep you coming back too!
